The southern soaked cuts selected here come straight from the back streets.
Most of this music
represents raw rock lifted from clubs breathing fire into the dark
heart of the after-midnight
mystical Memphis music scene. Other selections come deep from the catacombs

Now... on with the show!
JOE WALSH does Memphis! Once upon a time in the
nineties, Joe spent a few months in Memphis
partying, romancing, recording and generally soaking up the River
City vibes. Backed by
Memphis musicians, these live club tracks (captured right off
the mixing console) reflect
both his sense of humor and his unmistakable styling and technique.
DBEAVER AND COMBINATIONS was truly one of the
great sleeper albums of the seventies.
Produced by Jim Johnson and DBeaver at the now defunct Trans Maximus
(TMI) Studios, it
featured a whos-who of great Memphis artists including Jimi Jamison,
David Mayo, Tommy Cathy,
Pat Taylor, Carl Marsh, Leo LaBlanc, J. A. Spell, Joel Williams,
Steve Spear, Jimmy Tarbutton,
Reni Crook, Jackie Cook and, of course, David Beaver. This album
was well ahead of the times
at its 1972 release date.
SHAWN LANE, artist, composer, teacher, producer,
magazine writer, and legend to
serious guitarists everywhere. This mysterious (and reclusive)
artist and I worked together
for a short while back in 86 and some classic moments have been
captured here on some
previously unreleased tracks. Shawn... if you're on the net, I
gave you TWELVE YEARS to do
something with these songs. The world needs to hear this
stuff so here it is!
TARGET with members Jimi Jamison, Tommy Cathy, Buddy Davis,
Paul Cannon & David Spain
hit the mark on the 1970's Memphis Overton Square music scene.
Here are some ultra rare tracks
recorded at the High Cotton nightclub, February 1975. Recorded
by Bobby Davis and Steve Cox.
GOOD QUESTION led by Van Duren, these Memphis
pop icons can always be found
somewhere among the club scene, performing nightly. Voted by many
group most likely to surprise you that they aren't already more
THE BLUEBEATS represented eighties hip, trendy
music styles that they freely
fused with those ever present Memphis blues. The Bluebeats captured
spirit of Memphis midtown yuppies-after-dark with humor intact
and tounge firmly in cheek.
PETE PEDERSON is one eclectic artist you really
need to give a listen. An original
member of the Harmonicats, this Memphian holds the writer's pen
countless major advertising campaigns (Goodrich, Pontiac, McDonalds,
and theme songs (Lorimar Telepictures, etc). In this selection
Gershwin's An American In Paris on the harmonica backed by a
three piece combo. You won't believe how good this guy is!
Gentry Jones is one of those Memphis musicians you've seen
Playing bass in a local pick-up band or maybe singing at your
wedding reception. A lesser known part of Gentry is his
wonderful gift for storytelling in song. Here's an
example to set the record straight.
